A MAN has been airlifted to hospital after falling through the roof of a farm building this afternoon.

Paramedics and fire crews were called to Tockwith Road in Long Marston at 1.42pm.

A Yorkshire Ambulance Service spokeswoman said the man was flown by air ambulance to Leeds General Infirmary.

North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service said they also helped with breathing apparatus as there were fears of asbestos in the building.
